Huck's Heroine

May 15, 2018

This is a harrowing story of a true Huck’s Heroine: Samantha Tygrit was packing up her car after shopping at a Las Vegas Walmart when two men got into a shootout in the parking lot and a bullet struck her in the shoulder. She ran to protect her daughter and her baby son and nephew. She would have been too late, except her daughter, Aaliyah Inghram, had spotted the danger and threw herself between the shooters and the two babies just in time. A bullet that would likely have killed her 18-month-old brother struck her instead. Luckily, she’s recovering. Police caught one of the shooters, and they believe they know who the other one was.

For the full story and to meet this incredibly brave young woman who reacted instantly to place herself in the line of fire to save her brother, click on the link. But don’t be surprised by Aaliyah’s size. She’s only 10 years old.

Incidentally, I love her American flag dress. Somehow reminds me of Wonder Woman.

    Wile the link to the "Rest of the Story" did not work, what a wonderful article. This young lady show the meaning of "true love for our fellow man". So glad to hear she is recovering and I'm sure the Lord will bring her back to complete health so she can continue to to help with the up -bringing of her brother.

    Thank you for this wonderful story.

    Governor,
    Do you not realize that there is a flag code and clothes are not to me made out of an American flag no matter how cute they are. I believe this also applies to fabric that looks like the American flag.
    Thanks.
